Used Executer Chip

Recommended Posts

I was given this mod chip, and a bunch of Aladdins, from a guy I bought some hard drives from. It does not have the wire that you hard wire to the board. I have never installed a mod chip before. My question is, can I solder directly to this chip? Or do I need to source a new cable for it? What are the chances this is a dead chip? anything else missing?? Thanks in advance!

If you fitting to a 1.0-1.4 you could ground the D0 point on the main board and it will work fine as is just the Lan/HDD leds will not be flashing.

Soft modding is like masturbating, It get's the job done but it's nothing like the real thing.

You could always change it later.

The only reason to connect the D0 from the main board to the mod chip is to allow the use of the original bios and now the Xbox Live is no longer around that option that's not needed.,

You can find pre-wired 3-pin JST connectors that will do the job.  The wire colors may be different but if you connect the correct wire to the LAN, HDD and D0 pads you'll be set.

For example:

10sets Mini Micro JST XH2.54mm 3-Pin Connector Plug With Wire Cable 150mm (US $0.99 + $1.50 S+H)

This listing is only one example there are many more sellers on eBay, etc.

I believe that's the correct connector.  Let me do a little more research to verify if that is the connector type.

I'm not sure if 150mm (15 cm) wire length is enough.

You also don't have the single RED wire RED connector used to provide 5Vdc from the alternate source for a 1.6 version Xbox.

Good Catch KaosEngineer I am going to put this on one of my 1.0 -1.4 xboxes so that's not an issue at least. If that is the correct connector that will be the way I go, cheap enough for sure. DNA64 I have all those pieces as well Thanks for the help. 

The first JST cables I found are not the correct pin spacing.  The pin pitch (distance between pins is 1.25 or 1.27mm not 2.54mm (0.1")

There are listings for them too on eBay.

https://www.ebay.com/itm/US-SELL-10-SETS-3Pin-15cm-Micro-JST-Molex-Picoblade-1-25mm-Male-Female-PCB-Board/272897774450?epid=2171152476&hash=item3f89f99372:g:jJIAAOSwgxxZlnO7  (not exactly what you need as it has the male cable with 3 wires and the mating female through hole connector).  

The wire length of 15 centimeters (150mm) should be long enough (I believe the originals are ~5 3/4" = 146.05mm).

The front panel all black cable connectors have an even narrower pin pitch than most all the other connectors on the X3 modchip. Probably 1mm but I don't have anything to measure them. 

I used the LPC debug header pin spacing (0.1" pin pitch) to compare the spacing for the 3-wire JST connector.  All 3 pins of it fit within the 0.1" spacing between 2 pins of the LPC pin header.

      XBOX ORIGINAL EXECUTER 2.6CE HDMI 3TB HDD Fresh build!!!
      This item sold on Ebay on September 5th, 2021, but buyer just messaged me saying he doesn't have the money. Officially by Ebay, I need to wait until September 9th and I can sell wherever.
      I am in Utah, hoping to ship in USA if possible. $300 + $25 shipping. I'm hoping to sell this system first and see how much of a loss I will take and then likely sell my other 3CE system also...

      Labor was installing the Xecuter modchip (soldering), removing the clock capacitor and replaced with a capacitor (needed for the revision 1.6) (soldering), replaced 22 capacitors on Motherboard (soldering),removed all the old thermal paste on 2 heat sinks, used fresh Artic Silver thermal paste, clean inside, clean fan, install Ghostcase, install 3TB hard drive, install StarTech adapter, install upgraded 80-way cable, clean inside DVD drive and clean optical, format hard drive, install XBMC4Gamers and the best dashes, load 166 games, test.

      This sale also includes the black cover and old parts including a baggie of the old capacitors.
       
      Current DVD Drive is a Thomson TGM600 wrorking great. I installed the Ghostcase top so you can see the spinning DVD , but old cover is included.
       
      Sale includes power cable, HDMI cable, and composite cable. And 2 controllers included.
       
      All new parts were just bought in August 2021, so this is a fresh build with low hours! I can include documentation and receipts if desired.
       
      The Blue LED Kit is just tacked in place with hot glue in top center. It can easily be peeled off and moved if desired.

      G'day mates ! (typical aussie speak i swear)
      I've had a bit of a break from the OGX scene however I am back now and picking up the peices after I did what I wanted to with some old projects.
      Thanks to @SS_Daveive got a $20 bargain 1.4 board working again (afte I butchered an LPC build) however I want to extract an old bios file I wrote a couple of years ago on my Duo x3 chip.
      Whats the best tool to estract it and then edit it to see what is in it so I can modify it for this new box. As I have a strong feeling the file I wrote was for a slimeline I made with a DVD delete, however It has some colours and settings I changed that I want to use for this new OGXBox.
      Cheers - Dan
